Staying at their farm was a beautiful and delightful experience. Warm Welcome from Candace and Sequoia. The campsite has everything we needed for our little family, including our 20 months daughter: nice place to setup our tent (with an unobstructed and ideal view on the garden , the goats and ducks, etc.), compostable toilet, open kitchen (we love open kitchens), and fridge (actually it is more like a cold room, so very roomy) We stayed two nights and we really felt out-of-the-time during that time. We went for the day at the East LaPorte River Access Park, a family friendly spot along the Tuckasegee River and to the Bear Lake which is a true gem. We would have loved to enjoy stand paddleboarding on the Bear Lake but we did not try because it was pretty cold and windy when we were out there... next time! Before returning to the farm, we stopped at Sylva Historic Downtown and stopped by Guadalupe restaurant that we really recommend too (local food, local vibes)... Candace let us know later that she is selling her tomatoes there ! big thumbs up for Candace and family for the hard work and big heart they put in their place !
We recommend cheerfully The Spotted Fawn Farm campsite. Elexis greeted us as we arrived at the main gate and we were surrounded by their fawns, hens, dogs and other farm animals. Elexis drove us down to the campsite which is very nicely located next to a little river inside their forest. The campsite has a fire ring, chairs and small tables, which makes it so convenient for us. There are three campsites in total along the same river but they are far enough to give privacy to each campsite. The farm has a lake access, the lake looks very big, not sure how far it goes ! we brought our stand paddleboard and enjoyed paddling on the lake. As a note, the lake can get very busy in the afternoon with other motorized boats. We stayed one night and did not use the shower, the shower fits beautifully in the middle of their beautiful barn. We used their toilet and barn bathroom, that was perfect for us. We enjoyed a lot our stay and will definitely stay there again ! Thank you Elexis for making this campsite available.
Our family of three (with our 16 months old baby daughter) had a great 5 nights stay at the Wondernut Farm. Staying for a long time gave us the opportunity to experience the farm life better and everyone living or working at the farm warmly shared their experiences with us. Our baby daughter enjoyed visiting the animals frequently. We all enjoyed living outdoor during our stay. Our Guest Cabin was comfortable and rustic and we could sleep the three of us in the Queen bed. We will always remember how our daughter woke up with wonder on the first morning, overlooking the quiet farm from the cabin bed. The room had plenty of space around the bed to leave our stuff and that was convenient for us. The Wondernut Farm has open common areas: open kitchen, open dining-room and open living-rooms, we used a lot these common areas to prepare our meals and rest and we could find everything we needed. In the morning we could taste the fresh goat milk and that was really great too. We did a nap on the Tree Bed that is also listed on HipCamp, it is very comfortable and it has a great fresh breeze during the day. When we were there, the temperature was very hot and as a consequence, the Guest Cabin was very hot as well, so we could hardly stay in there during the daytime to nap or rest. During the night the temperature was perfect. We took the advantage of the closeness of Yosemite to visit it for one day and it was a beautiful escape in the mountains, we walked to the Lower Yosemite Falls and to the Mirror Lake, two easy walks that we recommend with toddlers. We were lucky to see a bear there. In short, it was wonderful, invigorating, simple and our stay left us with a lasting nostalgic feeling
